10 Preschool Activities Using Household Items

17 Comments

I am always on the look out for fun activities for my little ones that won’t cost me a fortune in extra items needed for doing them.

I decided to gather together a list of 10 great activities using items commonly found around any home. Some of these are mine, and some are from other bloggers who graciously gave me permission to share them. All of them pass the penny pinching test, as well as the fun for kiddos test. I hope y’all enjoy!
